PROVING WHO IS TO BLAME IN MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT CASES

 

Obtaining expert legal advice at an early stage can be crucial to ensure that any claim for motorcycle accident compensation is successful.

 

In many cases establishing fault in a motorcycle accident is straightforward. However, there are many cases in which liability is disputed or unclear. In some cases the other party or the police may seek to blame the motorcycle rider for causing the accident particularly if the biker was riding at speed or overtaking when the accident occurred. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident it is important that you obtain your own independent legal advice from a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as possible after the accident.

 

Legal liability in motorcycle accidents is not always straightforward. It is therefore important to avoid making any admissions of liability or blame either to the other driver, the police or other people at the scene until expert legal advice has been obtained.

 

Even in cases where liability is admitted by the other party it is important that any injured motorcyclist or pillion receives their own independent expert legal advice from a specialist solicitor to ensure that they receive the maximum amount of compensation and payment of all financial losses to which they are entitled.

 

Freedom to choose your own motorcycle accident solicitor:

  

Remember - regardless of whether or not you have legal expenses insurance - you are free to choose your own solicitor to act on your behalf following a motorcycle accident. Your insurers may tell you that you must use their recommended solicitors (who may have paid a fee to your insurers in return for your case) but you do not need to use the solicitors offered by your insurers. You are free to choose your own solicitors to handle your claim for compensation.  For more information click here

Common questions regarding fault in motorcycle accident claims:

 

Can I claim if I was the rider of a motorcycle and the motorcycle accident was partly my fault?

YES: As a rider you are entitled to claim compensation for personal injury and loss if you have been injured as a result of a road accident that was not your fault. Even if you feel that you were partly to blame for the accident you should still seek our advice as it may be that you are still entitled to make a claim.

 

If you are found to be partly to blame or your riding or actions have contributed to the accident you can still claim compensation but your final award of compensation will be reduced to reflect the fact that you contributed to the accident. However, depending upon the severity of the injuries sustained the final award can still be significant even in cases where the rider is partly to blame for the accident. We have previously recovered over £100,000 for a motorcyclist who was injured in a road accident for which the motorcycle rider was 75% to blame.

 

 

Can I claim if the accident was caused by the rider of the motorcycle on which I was travelling as a pillion?

YES: If you have been injured in a road accident whilst travelling as a pillion passenger on a motorcycle you can claim compensation for any personal injury that you have sustained together with any financial losses .The claim will be against the insurers of the driver or rider who caused the accident which includes the rider of the motorcycle upon which you were travelling at the time of the accident.
